President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the immediate removal of Mohammed Fadah as director-general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
According to sources, the president’s decision was taken on Thursday, and comes amid concerns over “incompetence”.
Fadah’s reported removal comes months after he assumed office — he took over in May 2022 and became the 19th person to hold the position of NYSC DG.
Meanwhile, following his reported removal, Fadah is said to have been asked to hand over to the most senior official within the NYSC.
The senior official who takes over from Fadah is expected to act as DG of the corps pending the announcement of a new appointment.
